Dutch powerhouses Showtek and Bassjackers have teamed up once again, this time delivering a unifying dance track titled "Friends" that's poised to electrify dance floors globally.
"Friends" is a dynamic Mainstage anthem characterized by its melodic piano sequences, a rapid beat, and an energetic drop. Fans of Showtek will recognize the uplifting energy that echoes their iconic hit "Booyah." At the same time, Bassjackers inject the track with their signature sense of unity, reminiscent of their massive hit "Mush Mush."
Showtek, consisting of brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen, has had a monumental journey in dance music. Initially making waves as hardstyle DJs, they quickly became recognized for their number one hardstyle anthem, FTS. As their sound evolved, they ventured into the EDM arena, collaborating with big names like Tiësto, Major Lazer, and Steve Aoki. Their track "Bad" with David Guetta alone amassed over 505M Spotify streams and garnered support from renowned DJs like Hardwell.
On the other hand, Bassjackers, the perfect blend of DJ Marlon Flohr's stage energy and producer Ralph van Hilst's behind-the-scenes prowess, have carved their path in the industry. Their breakout moment came in 2011 when Tiësto picked up their track "Mush Mush" for his label, Musical Freedom. It dominated the Beatport Top 10 for months and set the tone for their future success. Collaborations with Martin Garrix, Afrojack, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, as well as remixes for top artists like Rihanna and Enrique Iglesias, have solidified their position at the pinnacle of the dance music scene.
This collaboration between Showtek and Bassjackers on Skink Records is more than just a track; it's a testament to the combined might of two dance music giants. With both duos at the peak of their careers, "Friends" is set to become yet another anthem for fans worldwide.
